    I had a similar problem. I was unlocked and rooted, but otherwise stock. After looking at the "install aborted" screen, I noticed that it was tripping up because it was looking for the "vzwbackupassistant.apk" that I deleted when I first rooted. If you did that, then you need to reinstall it in recovery mode.

    Hey Lohung, yeah, it's CWM that's causing the problem. You need stock recovery to accept an OTA. You could just flash a stock IMM76K build and get the same result, that's what I did.

    PS I moved this to the All Things Root section. Thanks for understanding. :)

    heres the thing i dont want to flash them separately.. i am totally new to all this rooting and i would like to take the least amount of "new steps" as possible ATM.. thats why i would like to the 4.0.2 stock.. then let my phone update.. instead of flashing several things which i wouldnt know if i was flashing the right thing or not so can someone either link me the stock one for 4.2

    If you want to stay rooted you pretty much have to flash two separate zips. No roms include firmware. Which is why you have to flash the firmware separate.

    If you really want to go through it the stock normal way. I recommend restoring your device to stock and relocking the bootloader.

    I do ;) :p :) :D.

    I already directed Lohung to my Android Root Toolkit app which has a "make recovery stick" option / feature.

    Also, this post details how to do this manually:
